Netflix today indicates intention to adopt additional charges for users who share their Netflix accounts with others outside of their families, a behaviour that is prevalent with the streaming service.

According to Netflix, sharing accounts across homes harms its ability to “invest in amazing new TV and films” for its subscribers, and thus it has been investigating methods to allow customers to share outside of their houses by “paying a little more.”

Price For Paired New Users

A new dedicated update coming over the next several weeks in Chile, Costa Rica, and Peru will introduce these additional fees to any user who offers Netflix access to others who they do not live with. Netflix subscribers in these countries may add two new members to their accounts for monthly costs of 2,380 CLP in Chile, 2.99 USD in Costa Rica, and 7.9 PEN in Peru. For comparison, Netflix costs $8.99 to $15.99 per month in Costa Rica.

Meanwhile, within a space of two months, since the beginning of the year, Netflix have also added a price increament to its tier plans starting with users in Canada, US and recently also topped its price in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

The streaming company wants to provide users on the Basic, Standard, and Premium plans an option to let the individuals with whom they share an account migrate a profile over to a new, paid account or an additional member account, indicating multi-household Netflix account sharing is coming to an end.

Countries To Observe the First Test

They would be observing and trying to “understand the value of these two features” in Peru, Chile, and Costa Rica before making adjustments in other countries. Netflix has long contained text in its terms and conditions that restricts account use across multiple homes, but until recently, the service overlooked password sharing.

Cost Of Netflix in The United States

Netflix is the only streaming service that charges by streaming quality. In the United States, Netflix costs $9.99 for the Basic no-HD plan that allows for streaming on a single device, $15.49 for a Standard HD plan that allows for two people to watch at the same time, and $19.99 for a Premium plan with Ultra HD streaming and support for four simultaneous viewers.

Share you opinion with us. Do think its proper for Netflix to charge an additional cost for users with shared accounts?
